While several teachers failed to turn up for the training programme at 1pm at Kapalmochan office on October 29, the Manohar Lal Khattar government has now sought an explanation from them as to why did they fail to participate in the event.

The SDO has asked for departmental disciplinary action against the teachers who chose to skip the priest training programme.

The Haryana government wanted the teachers to perform ‘poojas’ and other rituals at an upcoming village fair.
